Everywhere i go
Everywhere i go

The album will consist more of various Ugandan artistes and McKenzie recruited Baru of BaruBeats, Aethan & Samurae for it’s production and this combination gets this much anticipated Album a master Piece.
Among the many reasons you don’t have to miss this album, one is the fact of transition that McKenzie has for our ears with all the earned experience  through out his stay in this game.

This is one of the those rare hip-hop projects that undoubtedly no one should even think about missing , because probably if you take time listening to almost all the already released tracks like Winner’s Circle and Everywhere we go Rude boy mix, am sure you can’t stay the same. McKenzie is celebrating 10 years in the radio and the hip-hop industry put together and so this project will be a decade long celebration, as well as a way of celebrating Ugandan hip-hop journey.
Despite the fact that at times you may not find McKenzie rapping on some if not all tracks, he actually uses different artistes on different tracks to send his message through Censorship and experience which makes his projects worthy. I personally believe in his works and efforts, he does a project and real gives it his whole. it Keep you ears ready.

The Ugandan Jay-Z

Posted on Updated on

Reading the title of this post, might make you Tamale Mirundi trying to cope up asking yourself who the hell is Ugandan Jay-Z. no worries, you just need to scroll down.
image

Commonly referred to as “The Ugandan Jay-Z” ,St. Nelly-Sade real names “Nsubuga Nelson”, is a Ugandan Lugaflow rapper, storyteller and extraordinary lyricist.
Introduced by the Hip Hop Canvas album 2009 and 2010 to the music scene as he narrates in his “Nzijukira” song, paving way for more open opportunities which later helped him have prescences on WAPI, End of the Weak Uganda, Spoken Truth and Mic Stand Hip Hop night, as well as having performances on both national and international stages like the  Bayimba International Festival of the Arts, Uganda Hip Hop Summit, as well as performances in Arusha Tanzania as well as various regions all over east Africa.
He is an ambassador of the End of the Weak International Hip Hop Festival.

Nelly-Sade started serious rapping in 2002 under the Hip-Hop Gangstarz group which later had to break up, though for his case he did not put his tools down.
He then joined the “Bavubuka All Starz” foundation along with a few of his peers, with whom later emerged from the foundation to form a group known as the “Luga Flow Army” which is still in running till now.With hit singles like “Tubale”, “Nzijukira”,
“Kakuubidde wa” and “Nva Ntinda” “Neighbour (kankuwaneko)”, Love story, “Nina Plan”, You and I, “ebbaluwa” among other he has proved to the industry that is one to stay.

St Nellysade Kakubiddewa

St Nelly Sade is one who sits his fans on a mat to articulate and share his deepest thoughts and emotional stories through diverse sounds that are characterized by snares and kick drums.
Think about st nellysade and you will get a clear definition of what luga flow is all about. He feeds LugaFlow with simplicity, passion and love through his well organized lyrics, content, nice flow on extremely interesting beats, tapping every corner of his culture.
If he was doing his raps in english, you would definitely be calling him “the Ugandan Jay-Z”. He has die-hard fans that would not spend a day without listening to one of his tracks, evidenced by the way people purchase his works and the feedback he receives.

Two years back, St Nelly Sade curved a tunnel of evolution for himself from being an ordinary underground emcee and to an established mainstream rapper. He has created a level of lyricism, flow, artistry and wordplay which he takes from his debut album to his new album leaving him with no choice but only to prove his sheer talent and credibility on the mainstream hip-hop arena as well as better his highly rated debut album.

Stories of Elevation Album

Having released his debut album “The translation (Okutaputa)” in 2013 which was the first hip-hop album to sell out album copies, he has a new album the sophomore Omulondo N’engero (Stories of elevation) which is also doing good.

He has also collaborated with the veteran Lyrical G, keko, Moth, Navio, Ruyonga, nadujja among others and also featured on the UG Cypher 1.
And has also had several nominations like the Teeniez Hottest Hip hop song in Buzz
Teens awards in 2014 and Best Luga flow artist in the raising star awards

Ugandan New Short Film ” AKELLO” turns into a Girl Campaign.

Posted on Updated on

If you want to change a whole people, then you start with the girls. It stands to reason: they learn faster, and they pass on what they learn to their children. That is the phrase and meaning carried to the recently premiered Short Film AKELLO. An 18 minutes short film written and directed by social justice film maker and activist Busulwa Gabriel Walta and produced by Neeraj Vishwakarma. “Akello” is based on real life stories that are currently happening to girls around Africa, it tells a story of a 14 year old who was influenced by fellow peer in school to date an older guy who later got pregnant and was sent away from home.
The well written story now has turned guns to embark on a campaign to end teenage pregnancy in Africa.


The Movie had its first screening on January 2017 during the 3rd African Union week in Addis Ababa Ethiopia, from there it screened in more than 12 African countries and then in Uganda.

Akello Premiere


Girls are powerful. Girls have potential. Girls can change the world. And yet in certain places around the world, girls continue to lack access to opportunities.

Girls living in Uganda face a number of challenges that can impact their well-being, education development and their future. Those attending school often face gender bias and discrimination in textbooks, the curriculum, and from the teachers themselves. In poorer or more rural families, it is more difficult for girls to attend school, as education is often considered only important for boys. Girls in Uganda are more likely to drop out of school, marry early, and experience poverty than their male counterparts.

Uganda has one of the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in Sub-Saharan Africa at over 25%.

“We decided to use the film as a key campaign driver in order to reach out a lot of young people, parents , stake holders and policy makers across Africa”, Says Walta.


Campaign objectives.

• Create awareness on the rising cases on teenage pregnancy.

• To promote parent to child free information sharing.

• To create free information access from teacher to students.

• Influence on policies in Africa on women.

• To open high level dialogues and symposiums on girl education.

Target audience.

Refugees, Policy Makers, Youth/University Students / High school students, Religious leaders, Women, Entertainers, Families, Young people

Activities includes Dialogue discussions from community level, participatory theatre and mass sensitization, community screening and engagement, education related workshops, teacher training, parent and child community lab and community activities fellowship.

For the of love the Ugandan Movie Industry.

Limit Production takes you through the crazy Mistakes Girls Do in their Fresh new TV Series.

Posted on Updated on


You should write a book,” Ron told  Hermon,( in Harry Potter the book) as he cut up his potatoes, “translating mad things girls do so boys can understand them.

However mad and complex a human gets, i personally never think it beats the madness and complexity of a female creature, they live a life that is truly unpredictable, dynamic, confusing and mind blowing. i guess its harder to understand girls than the Ugandan government at times. Behind the make up and the beautiful plastic copied smiles lies both smart and stuck brains, humor, ego, wishes, dreams, fantasy, tears, excitement, love and a bunch of other things that the world has never gotten enough of.


In an effort to bring you closer to the world of girls and their effects to the environment around them, Limit Production (A Ugandan Movie making company) the makers of ‘The Only Son’ and ‘Freedom’ magnifies and breaks down what evolves around the feminine world in a fresh new TV series dubbed “MISTAKES GIRLS DO” . Multi-Award winning Director Richard Mulindwa gives what seems to be a normal title uniqueness and tells a story that many would read about but never get enough of.  He takes us through the definition of girls and the common mistakes they do, the challenges, the emotions, the life, the tears, the comedy, drama and the complexity.


Anticipated to bring out an amazing screen play and production, having had great locations, cast and crew, Mistakes Girls Do comes amidst competition from TV Series Like ‘The Honorable, ‘The Coffee Shop’, ‘Second Chance’ among others. it features Fashionista, Model, socialite and talented actress ‘Hellen Lukoma” among other talented casts from Limit Production.

Girls want to be thought of as smart, capable, strong, and compassionate than beautiful. Those things all persist long after beauty fades. They never want to completely phase out of the eyes of the world, they hide their true colors and constantly live the life they don’t own at times.

You want to know about girls, those who think and believe they run the world. You want to know about girls, grab your pen, a cheap diary from Nasser road, Seat in the Bus and enjoy the scenes of unfolding the hardest human to understand, close your eyes and listen to the voices and feel the emotions in the world of girls. Note down the ” Mistakes Girls Do”.

Coming Soon on your Screens. #UgandaFilms

The New World Of Cropped Pants for Men

Posted on

STIGA TOWN

In the past years, the way “Ugandan” Men wear pants hasn’t changed much nor fast. Literally, over the past times, pants should cover the top of your shoe with a defined crease where your shoe meets your ankle or your pants cover your uncles. However, in the past year, the cropped/cuffed pants trend has been making it’s way into mainstream retail, dodging through until its rise.

Commenting on women’s dress and skirt lengths has been the subject of frenzied fashion talk not only since mankind set its mind to the task of covering up, but also when Father Lokodo (Minister of Ethics) made it a county concern.

Commenting on women’s dress and skirt lengths has been the subject of frenzied fashion talk not only since mankind set its mind to the task of covering up, but also when Father Lokodo (Minister of Ethics) made it a county concern. But recently, fluctuations in the length of men’s trousers have caused raised eyebrows and head scratching too.  In the New Era, the most fashionable trousers are finishing a number of inches above the masculine ankle,  sending some guys into a sartorial tailspin not experienced since soccer player David Beckham wore a sarong (a fancy word for a wrap-around skirt) in 1998. 

Truly, this version was diverted from the old thoughts of the outfit being for a group of Moslem (Bakafili), who used it as a way to keep their trousers far from dust. Eventually, Fashionistas diverted it, owned it and Nailed it.

abryanz-style-and-fashion-awards-red-carpet-47-1000x667

The Usually Self-Styled outfit has taken over, from being the best room of comfort, to planting seeds of sense to style and fashion. The Cropped pants have given much freedom to shoe lovers (Those that like showing off).

In Uganda, i must say CirocUg Brand Ambassador , Proprietor Asfas and C.E.O Abryanz Collection is the among the few stylists who gave the cropped pants a more fresh look and sold it more, made it popular and eased through to hit a number of red Carpets. Cropped pants have until today been the most common outfit on different kinds of fashion shows, Red carpets, Offices among other environments. Its what has given the old Fashioned Suits an alarm for their stay.

Cropped above the ankle, worn with no socks

This is a look not for the faint-heated, you will need to be fully committed.
Keep the look simple with good tailoring. The trousers need to be very slim, especially towards the hem. This look can be worn with or without a cuff.
Because the short trousers length can make the wearer look short, he should be of a medium to tall height, and of a slim physique.
The shoes worn should be a good brogue or loafer, and they should be well polished and looked after.
If you can style the outfit well, socks can be worn with this length. However, if done poorly, you will look like a school boy who has outgrown his clothes.


Below are the does and don’t s of the cropped pants.

  • DO: Let your cropped pants fall an inch above your ankle.
  • DON’T: Wear anything above ankle socks when your cropped pants aren’t cuffed.
  • DO: Wear chunky shoes.The bulk of this look should be in the shoes, not the socks. Because this look exposes your shoes, don’t be afraid to show off!
  • DON’T: Wear wide-leg cropped pants. When it comes to this look, width is very important. The narrower the better. You can, however, get away with a strictly straight leg pants.
  • DO: Wear ankle boots. They work very well with this trend, and for the colder months approaching.

“Uganda’s approach towards film is totally different”-AMVCA 2017 nominee Mageye Hassan Says.

Habitual procrastinators will readily testify to all the lost opportunities, missed deadlines, failed relationships and even monetary losses incurred just because of one nasty habit of putting things off until it is often too late. Alan Dean once said, “The thing all writers do best is find ways to avoid writing.” I admit am in the same pool, but here am at it again.

Multi-Award winner, many times continental award nominee, the reigning Uganda Film Festival Actor of the year and Director New Cinema Production “Hassan Mageye” has yet again installed hope in the hearts of the hard working movie makers with his recent accomplishments. Having started the year with pace, Mageye’s new production ‘EPIDEMIC’ was nominated in the 2017 Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards in the category of Best Movie (East Africa).

He was part of the event that was held at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island Lagos, Nigeria.

Asked about the opportunity to grace this year’s edition of the prestigious awards, he says “it feels great to be able to lift our country , movies high to the level we all want.”

Most of the time in different departments of the entertainment industry in Uganda, when an individual goes out of the country to represent, its part of their responsibilities to find out gaps that we need to fill to reach a better position, or identify areas of weaknesses to be polished so as to get works to the platforms they deserve. In his words, Mageye says, “The African film industry is growing so fast, its this time I admit that we are soon exporting quality works and entertainment to America and Europe. However, Uganda ‘s approach towards film is totally different”.



It will take time to catch up, but we have to apply long term methods, study film , collaborating with these top film making nations in Africa is a better route to take ,this will give us more polished skills, do cross over projects and that’s what will drive us to  recognition and international image for the Uganda Film Industry at large, “Mageye further adds”.

Having tasted the challenges, the New Cinema Productions Director says we locally need to improve what we give to our fans, ensure that we do good quality movies, learn the marketing business of this work , and brand our stars.  In Africa’s best film making countries, stars are stars and are well branded.g


Mageye is also blessed with another nomination in Kenya’s River-wood Academy Awards 2017 for his two Movies ‘Invisible Cuffs’ and ‘Epidemic’ for Best East African Movie category. The RiverWood Academy Awards is coming up on 11th March 2017 and the jury just completed the selection process. The unveiling ceremony took place on 22nd February 2017 at Alliance Francaise- Nairobi.

Therefore, after the AMVCAs, Mageye is heading to Nairobi to attend the Riverwood Academy Awards Ceremony. And he will then focus on upcoming project ‘The Devil’s Chest’. Lets keep the hard work, triple efforts and drive the ugandan Movie Industry to where we want it to be, less taking more good works. Stay blessed. #SupportUgFilms
